In most of the cases, even without thinking it, many people turn on the A/C immediately when they sit in their cars. However, did you know that this can be actually very dangerous for you and also everyone around you?
Explanation – when we leave our cars outside, we always close the windows. When we leave it in the shadow, it accumulates 400 to 800 mg of benzene.
When you park your car in the sun, temperature is higher than 16 degrees Celsius. The levels of benzene can upsurge from 2000 to 4000 mg and that is a amazing 40 times more than the acceptable level.
When you sit down in your car with previously closed windows, you inhale the benzene – it affects your liver, kidneys and bone tissue. Our organism will need a lot of time to eliminate that.
The manuals for your car will say that you should open the car’s windows before turning on the Air Conditioner, on the other hand they will not tell you why.
Before it jumps to cool the air, the air conditioner banishes all the heated air out. This also includes the benzene, as a toxin that we all know causes cancer.
Therefore, when you sit in your car and you can’t notice a smell of a heated plastic, open the windows for more than a few minutes and then turn on the A/C. Leave the windows open for quite a few minutes more when you will turn on the car.
Start practicing this and you will protect yourself from toxins, before the consequences are fatal.
